I think we’ve all experienced it – you feel like you’re on top of the world, and that nobody can touch you. But suddenly, someone comes along, beats you at your own game and brings you back down to earth. At some point, we’ve all been overconfident and needed a reality check. I know I have!
The cocky doctor in this story had one such experience – he had no idea what the 83 year old man had in store for him.
If you liked the story, make sure to share it – laughter is the best medicine!
A doctor goes out and buys the fastest and flashiest car he can find, a brand new Ferrari GTO, costing him $500,000.
He takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light. An old man on a pink moped, looking about 80 years old, pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the sleek, shiny car and asks, “What kind of car ya got there, sonny?”
The doctor grins and replies, “A brand new Ferrari GTO. It cost me half a million dollars, but it was worth every penny!”
“That’s a lot of money,” says the old man. “Why does it cost so much?”
“Because this car can do up to 225 miles an hour!” the doctor states proudly.
The old moped driver asks, “Mind if I take a quick look inside?”
“No problem,” replies the doctor, eager to show off his new toy.
So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around.
Then, sitting back on his moped, the old man says, “That’s a pretty nice car all right, but I’ll stick with my moped!”
Light turns green
Just then the light changes, so the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 20 seconds, the speedometer reads 150 mph.
Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror – what could it be… and suddenly…
Something whips by him, going much faster!
“What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?” the doctor asks himself.
He floors the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 175 mph. Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it’s the old man on the moped!
Amazed that the moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the moped at 200 mph.
The doctor is feeling pretty good about himself, until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN! Astounded by the speed of his old geezer, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 225 mph.
Not ten seconds later, he sees the moped bearing down on him again!
The Ferrari is flat out, and there’s nothing he can do!
Suddenly, the moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end. The doctor stops, jumps out and, unbelievably, the old man is still alive!
He runs up to the bruised old man and says, “Oh my gosh! Is there anything I can do for you?”
The old man whispers, “Well son, you can unhook my suspenders from your side mirror.”
